My brain is bouncing all over the place with this week’s prompt.
Bear has a book fair project due soon. I walked into her room last week and stopped dead in my tracks – the place looked like a crime scene, just with clothes everywhere instead of blood. I called her on it (if you can say sputtering “but what…I mean, how…what on earth happened in here?!?” is calling her on it), and as I crossed the room Bear actually had the gall to say, “Well, that’s my book fair project.”
Umm…okay, sweetie pie, this right here might be your project, but All The Rest is just mess.
We’ve passed the absorption point on home projects. You know how it can rain up to a certain level and the ground happily drinks it up, but then there’s that tipping point when the flooding begins? Our house is like that right now. If there were soil we’d have worms swimming to the surface to play with the dogs.
Everywhere I turn there’s a project that needs doing. Floors need two weeks straight of mopping just to peel off all the dog paw dirt. Blinds need dusting and closets need cleaning out. Laundry needs folding (yes, again), the storage room needs organizing, and the kitchen cabinets are a wreck. I can’t even think about the garage, and cleaning out the office is a “project” like climbing Mount Everest is a “hike.”
It’s gotten to where I turn around four times, realize there’s just too much, and crash with the dogs. I guess I’m waiting for the Project Fairy to pay us a visit one night.
I’d even be willing to leave her a little something for her trouble…
Linda’s Stream of Consciousness Saturdays are open to anyone who’d like to participate. Pop over and give her blog a visit. This week’s prompt is “project.”
